Alleged White Supremacist Arrested in MLK Day Plot
A man the Southern Poverty Law Center reports has ties to the neo-Nazi group National Alliance was arrested in an FBI raid on his home in Addy, Wash., Wednesday morning in connection with the attempted bombing of the Unity Parade on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
Kevin William Harpham, 36, of Addy, was taken into custody Wednesday morning at his Addy home. He was scheduled to make a first appearance in federal court in Spokane at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday...
The FBI has not commented on the raid, but the criminal complaint against Harpham, filed Tuesday in U.S. DIstrict Court in Eastern Washington, alleged that on or about Jan. 17, Harpham "did knowingly attempt to use a weapon of mass destruction" in that he placed an improvised explosive device along the Unity March parade route on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
Just another one of those isolated incidents. Wonder if Representative Pete King will hold hearings on the terrorism dangers posed by bitter white guys?
